Heady! Not perfect, but what a nice powerful jam before the final verse especially and a nice wind-up for Sugar Mag at the end. Thanks for the recommendation.

Some very impressive jamming at the end of this '93 Wharf.

Glad to see someone mention this version. June of 1993 is a really interesting month, Jerry's playing was absolutely wonderful for much of it. That show is a nice example of some of its distinctive characteristics. At times, there is a really good, locked-in sound with assertive, precise Jerry that almost reminds me of 71, the "shoot-em-up bar band" style.

This is about the most jammed-out Wharf Rat I know - over 14 minutes long:

Yeah, 5/7/77's always been one that comes to mind for me as one of the better, longer versions. I'm also thinking of 10/14/77.

For no particular reason at all really I've always really loved 3/18/71 and 4/5/71.
